The Google Cultural Institute

For several years Google has been working with a number of art and cultural institutions to help digitize offline exhibits and bring them to the online masses. Now, Google has announced their plans to open up the Google Cultural Institute as a platform for museums and galleries to build their own mobile apps. Currently, the platform is only compatible with Android phones and interested parties must apply to be considered for access to the app. Thus far, Google has been working with 11 institutions in four countries (France, Italy, Netherlands, and Nigeria), but they hope to expand soon.
